When I give talks on Hypnosis or Psych-K®, a question I am often asked is, “Can anyone be hypnotized?” You might as well ask, “Can everybody relax?”
The answer is yes. As long as you want to, you can learn to relax. As long as you want to, you can go into a hypnotic trance. However, if you don’t feel comfortable and don’t trust the practitioner you are seeing you will probably not relax very deeply, whether they are guiding you into a relaxing meditation or into a hypnotic state.
Hypnosis is always self hypnosis. You have to open up to being guided. You are choosing to focus on the voice of the hypnotist. You are choosing to let go and go to a deeper and healthier level of your mind.
At this deep level of your mind, your brain wave activity slows down to the alpha or theta frequency. You are between being awake (beta wave activity) and being asleep (delta waves) and your subconscious mind is accessible to receive beneficial suggestions that help you reach your goals. Old beliefs can be erased and new, more supportive beliefs can be programmed at this deep level.
Contrary to how it might appear when you see a stage hypnotist perform or when hypnosis is portrayed in the media, the person in hypnosis is always in control. You can choose to come out of your trance at any time. You will not do or say anything that you would not normally do or say. You won’t cluck like a chicken unless you want to.
